Mulch is the "secret weapon" of water conservation in the garden. A 2-3" layer of mulch will minimize evaporation, maintain soil moisture, suppress weeds and improve the overall appearance of your garden. Mulch decomposes slowly over time so it needs to be replenished at least yearly. Avoid building mulch up at the base of your plants because you don't want to cover and suffocate the main stem or "crown".

Check daily and harvest early (if harvesting for pickling, even earlier). Timing and length will vary with variety. The fruits should be firm and smooth. Overripe cucumbers can be very bitter or pithy, even before they start to turn yellow.

Most apples are ready to pick when they separate easily from the tree. Lift and gently rotate the apple upward to avoid damaging the spur. You can also cut open an apple and look at the seed color. When the seeds turn dark brown, the apples are ready, but taste is the best indicator. Cool weather or low light (for example, during foggy weather) during ripening can affect color. If you are harvesting apples for root cellar storage, pick them when firm-ripe.
